Discover ancient Bute from your Rothesay holiday home
Discover the idyllic Scottish seaside town of Rothesay from your holiday home. The island's history stretches back more than 8,000 years, and you'll find Iron Age forts, medieval castles and World War II submarine bases beside Bute's pristine beaches.
Unearth ancient history
Pore over the remarkable natural history exhibits at Bute Museum, where you can trace the history of the island through its wildlife and geology. You'll also see artefacts produced by Bute's human inhabitants, including Neolithic graves, the facial reconstruction of a Bronze Age skull and Celtic and Viking treasures.
Rothesay Castle's dungeons impress with their substantial size and ancient manacles. Wandering the ramparts, you might almost be led to believe you had stepped into medieval Britain. An important bastion against Norwegian invaders, the 13th century edifice was once occupied by Robert the Bruce and later Cromwell's troops were based here.
Swimming and ice cream
Start your Bute adventure at the Isle of Bute Discovery Centre. The structure dates to the 1920s, and its cast iron and glass houses a cinema, theatre and interactive displays about Bute's rich heritage.
Ettrick Bay is a haven for young swimmers, and it's also the most easily accessible of Bute's beaches. This expanse of golden sand has several picnic areas and children's play area. Not far away there's a bird hide from which you can spot seabirds. Grab an ice cream at Etterick Bay Tearoom and explore the historic Stone Circle overlooking the bay.
Time travel on Bute
St. Blane's Chapel settles in a serene hollow, overlooking Bute Sound. The monastery was founded more than a thousand years ago. You can still see a 12th century chapel on the site, testimony to the island's rich Celtic history.
Next, take a look at the island's most important prehistoric site. Nearby St. Blane's, Dunagoil Fortress and Little Dunagoil fort bear witness to Bute's Neolithic inhabitation.
